Paragas Law Offices
Absolutely horrible. He never returned a call, his paralegal is equally incompetent, the new Omaha area code was 531 and she claimed that by not calling me back for two weeks, was due to her not being from omaha, and she was continually dialing 1-(531)...REALLY?!!!!! FOR TWO WEEKS? He never kept a promise, was very unprofessional, never keeping me in the loop, I was facing 4 felonies for a domestic situation, that he assured me would be dropped to a misdemeanor, and when it wasn't he said we will put pressure on the prosecutor and she wouldn't take it to trial. Wrong again, she wouldn't budge, and I showed up for trial, even though he had never contacted me to discuss the case or call witnesses. I get to the court house, prepared for trial....And nothing, empty courtroom ... I only heard crickets. I called him immediately, to discover he was in Council Bluffs, and he non-chalantly informed me that he took a plea on my behalf...one felony, and there was no trial. He called my house and left me a message that morning, informing me that we weren't going to trial, I had already left for the court house. I never felt more degraded, disrespected or ignored .... As I did with him. I felt so violated and misrepresented ... I needed a shower to remove the filth of his negligence and incompetence. I will NEVER EVER recommend him. There are several other things he neglected to address but I won't bring those up. Randy has a horribly checkered past involving misdemeanors of his own, and I never questioned his professional ability, nor did I judge him. I gave him the benefit of the doubt ... I paid a very high price too.

Paragas Law Offices
Randy Paragas is not only THE WORST attorney, but the worst professional I've ever had a chance to work with in my life!!! He did absolutely NOTHING for the case! Representing yourself is a better alternative- and a much cheaper one (although I would recommend hiring a GOOD attorney- just not this one).During the first meeting he promised to review the recording, work out a deal with the prosecutor, said how well connected he is, and how he can choose which one of his friends (yeah, right) will be the Judge. He also said he can "arrange" for the Court ordered AA meetings/treatment to be one of those "Oh, if you can't make it to one, then my guy will just write it up as if you were there." (is that even legal??). Finally, he was referring to the "favor basket" he had with the prosecutors. What a joke!Mr. Paragas made a lot of promises, yet delivered NONE, except extending the Court date half a dozen times. In some cases, his secretary would call the morning of the trial and say they will reschedule (apparently your days off from work are not important). His fee was twice or three times the amount of other reputable attorneys in Omaha, and falling for his "sales pitch" was a mistake. After a while it was very clear that he says THE EXACT SAME STORY to every single client and is highly unfamiliar with the individual case. He is one of the best liars I have ever met.Finally, he will NOT do ANYTHING to prepare you for the Court, nor will he keep you in the loop of what is going on with the case. You will only get a letter in the mail with the court date and time. He was upset if we reached out asking what is happening with the case and implied that we are one of those difficult clients. He showed up 30 minutes late for the Court and the sentence was harsher than the harshest option he said could happen. I received 30 days in jail, 2 year probation and $1,300 fee for a second DUI (the first was 5 years ago). And might I say that he had the exact same charge in 2011 and received only a probation and $600 fine. The bottom line is: STAY AWAY from this attorney! He will waste your time and money, and most of all he will not care one bit about what happens to you. I am not sure if he can sleep at night, considering how careless he is with other people's lives.

Extremely unprofessional! I've had two unfortunate experiences w this attorney. For two different cases. On the first one, after the court (which she lost the case) she started yelling and threatening the entire family. I was shocked to witness an attorney behave in such a manner. The second time she refused for weeks to turn in paperwork that was being asked of her. She went as far as not showing up the first hearing and not even notifying her client of that hearing. Alleging that she was not aware of the hearing. I'm surprised this woman is licensed to practice to law. I would give her zero stars if possible.

Ecker III, John, JD
If you are in need of an attorney do not use John Eker. He is a terrible attorney. He will not represent you and work for you like he should. He will agree with whatever the other party suggest even if you say not to. He will forget your court dates, forget to file documents and even forget who you are sometimes. He will try to drag out your case to make money. And you will not get what you hired him to get. He is a pushover not a fighter. He will talk you forever at appointments about everything else except your case and try to charge you that time. You will do all the work and have to tell him what needs to be done and he will get mad when you type up or do something better than him. Then throw you under the bus to the courts and withdraw from representing you. He did this to me 2dys before my trail. Do not use this guy. And tell anyone looking for representation not to as well.

O'bradovich Michael Atty
This is the lawyer suing me for a debt collector, so i called him to avoid my bank account getting frozen which would be catastrophic because I'm on a fixed income with three teenage kids and the information Micheal gave me relived my anxieties but also restored my faith in lawyers. He spent 30 minutes helping me with possible options as well as advice for the future. Thank you Mr. O'bradovich for your sincere compassion and advice

Maxell Benjamin E Atty
Terrible experience. Mr. Maxell takes months to file necessary paperwork and lies and tells you things are filed when they aren't. If he is questioned in any way, he becomes ride and defensive. We settled outside of court on a simple proceeding 5 weeks ago and the paperwork was finally filed 4 days ago after weeks of being ignored and lied to. When questioned, he told me to "settle down" and discussed how I need to be professional. He took no responsibility for 9 months of not doing his job and repeatedly told me how his personal life was complicated.

Quinn Law
I hired justin for a family law issue. Justin was prompt organized and professional in my representation. Had a ex wife that was trying to take everything i had to get back at me and had her lawyer try and tell the judge i made 100,000 a year and wanted child support set on that number justin had that tossed out the window and now its set at a fair manageable amount, Becouse we all know ex wifes never spend 100% of child support on the child,it goes to there wants. This was a concern i voiced to justin and it was done. I highly recommend justin. Nick becker

Nelson, Greg
I wish I could give higher than 5 stars, because Mr. Nelson is worth it. I've had to use Greg twice now, and both times my outcome has been surreal. I was initially referred to Greg from a friend who also received a great result, and I wouldn't refer anyone but Greg Nelson. His experience as a Prosecutor shows, as he has extensive knowledge on the inter workings of the courts and you can tell he is respected by all. Not only does Greg help with the final outcome, but he is a good ally to have during the entire process. A DUI can be a very stressful process, but Greg's experience and professionalism helps take away a lot of this stress. To top it off, he is very reasonably priced and accepts payment plans. Please, don't choose a lawyer before contacting Greg Nelson.Greg, thanks again for your professionalism and assistance during my tough times. Sean M.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
